The Kansas Board of Regents will decide Wednesday if tuition at some universities will increase next year.
This year, legislators approved an additional $32 million for higher education. But some schools are still planning on raising tuition.
KU and Wichita State submitted plans to increase prices by 1 percent.
K-State wants to raise tuition by 3 percent.
One lawmaker is saying schools were hoping for more money from the legislature.
“Everyone has a goal of making college more affordable in Kansas, at the end of the day $33 million isn’t the $50 million that the universities, community colleges, the Board of Regents asked for and so I think they have to make up for that shortfall somewhere.”Rep. Brandon Woodard, (D) Lenexa
Woodard says after a decade of cuts to higher education, it will take more than one legislative session to fix the issue.
